Google will start selling domains

Google will start selling domains

Google apparently feels it isn't doing enough just dabbling in Internet search, cloud storage, video, social networking, productivity software, robotics, home automation and being an Internet service provider. So, it's testing a new feature it can offer.

Google wants to be the company you use to register domain names for websites. As a quick refresher, a domain name is how people find your site, such as www.komando.com.

Right now, registering a domain can be a little complicated. You might end up paying one company to handle your domain and another to handle your website. Even if you buy both through the same company, the Webhost might outsource the domain to another company.

Google wants to bring a bit of simplicity to the whole thing. It's also partnering with large Webhosts like Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly and Wix.com to make getting a domain and then setting up a site easier.

You can take a look at Google's first efforts at http://domains.google.com/about/. However, to use the service for now you will need an invitation.

Once you get a site up and running, you need traffic. Here are 3 proven ways to drive traffic to your site.
